Hey there Mike. No, you guys will still be stuck with flying with me again in the future. I hope to this year but I can't justify a $1600+ plane sitting around collecting dust and it will take a quite a few flights before I would feel comfortable flying it again so this is the decision I have come to. I need to fly cheaper planes more often!

Between the lack of survey work and 2-3 other jobs to make up the difference there hasn't been time to get down to the Point and fly, or even fly much around my house. I hope this will change this year, one way or the other.

I have been following the the ALEs thread and posts on yahoo with interest as you don't need a large field for a winch or high-start and that is appealing.

Chris,

Which kit is this? Maybe I overlooked it in your first post.

Hope this year brings the business. We are expecting a very busy year in trucking which is usually the tell for what the economy is doing.

Look forward to seeing soon!

Tell me what kit this is and I will spread the word about it.

The Blimp thing has slowed but we are still working on improvements and opportunities. The FAA pretty much destroys an chance of business in the US. We got our first COA from the FAA for the Ogden Police and then the Police chief got fired over some BS law. With the new mayor in office and as well as a Weber State moving on to new projects we kind of got left hanging.

The past week we have had a team in Bogota Columbia training the local TV station on how to use the airship. They will be filming soccer stadium games and using it for various aerial shots around the city. Hopefully everything goes as planned and nothing turns into an international incident

In full disclosure there are a few bits of hanger rash on the wing, but certainly nothing structural. I couldn't get them to come out in the photos. Some was there when I got it from Northeast Sailplanes a few years ago and some from being in the garage. I would like to get $250 for it with the gear and again, local (Utah) sale preferred.
This is an awesome plane. I am very tempted to buy this one from you. If nobody else speaks up I may have to have it. If someone else takes it I would be happy to help with programming and setup.

Chris,

You should post on the point of the mountain thread to get the word out to more local slopers.

Spencer, that is great about the international stuff and a real bummer on the FAA. I know another few people that were trying to do aerial photo stuff with planes and got into trouble. Bummer.

Thanks for the heads up Bobby, I would be all over this if my damn house wasn't sucking me dry. Seems like something new goes wrong every weekend. Last weekend was stucko and resulting water leaks.

Good to hear your alive and kicking Chris! Looking forward to seeing you at the slope. Best of luck in the coming year!
